The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) announced the 27 member companies that have received the SGIA 2019 Safety Recognition Program Award for relevant efforts throughout 2019. The annual program runs from 1 January 1 – 31 December and acknowledges those SGIA members which integrate dedicated health and safety into everyday business practices.

Participating SGIA member companies receive “points” for specific safety activities and initiatives, such as developing a new safety policy, creating a safety training program for new hires and providing worker safety training. Participants then submit documentation for each activity, and all companies that earn 80 points or more will receive an award and recognition on the SGIA website,with the three top-performing companies receiving additional recognition.

The 2019 SGIA Safety Recognition Program Award winners are as follows:

  • First place: Image Options
  • Second place: Federal Heath Sign Company LLC
  • Third place: Signcraft Screenprint Inc.

“We celebrate our member recipients of the 2019 Safety Recognition Award Program,” says Marci Kinter, Vice President, Government Affairs, SGIA. “These forward-looking companies are leaders in their respective fields in implanting health and safety practices into their operation throughout all of 2019. We look forward to continuing to see even more impressive program initiatives in 2020.”
